Being a better listener sometimes starts with hearing aids

When we think of simple ways of improving ourselves, many of us could probably learn to be better listeners. But, between the hustle and bustle of everyday life experiences and our own trials and tribulations, hearing loss makes listening a difficult task. Maybe it isn’t that you aren’t a good listener for others, maybe the problem lies in that you just have a hard time hearing. What would you do if we told you that becoming a better listener to others could start with the decision of getting a hearing aid?

According to the National Institutes of Health, an estimated one-third of people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 75 and close to one-half of those older than 75 have some degree of hearing loss. So how do you know if you need a hearing aid? On our webpage, we provide an online hearing loss assessment which is designed to give you an overview of your hearing and be the initial evaluation of your hearing loss. When you answer the questions truthfully, you may learn more about your hearing abilities and will also determine what your next step should be in improving your hearing in general. The online hearing test will probe you for answers to topics like understanding voices on the telephone, your level of difficulty you have sustaining a conversation in a crowded restaurant, the volume of your television, asking people to repeat themselves frequently, and many more.

At our full-service audiology clinics located in Scottsdale, Mesa, and Surprise, we offer a full range of hearing loss services including hearing tests, hearing aids, ear wax removal, middle ear testing, inner ear testing, and aural rehabilitation. Through innovative and professional care, we aim to create a treatment plan that is truly individualized, all the while creating an atmosphere of understanding of the sensitivity hearing loss. If you suspect hearing loss or changes, we encourage you to come see us to determine your needs. Losing one’s hearing is usually a gradual process and you may simply have become accustomed to not hearing as well as you once did.
